Lahore: Bushra Bibi, wife of former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, has sent a legal notice to ruling PML-N top leader Maryam Nawaz, accusing her of making “derogatory, false, frivolous and defamatory” allegations against her during her May Day speech in Lahore. An apology has been sought for the imposition. Bushra sent a notice to the daughter of three-time prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday. Maryam, in her speech, had accused a person of accepting “five-carat gold rings” as a bribe in exchange for the transfer of a plot of land during Khan’s tenure as prime minister.
“Maryam has launched a defamation campaign to defame Bushra Bibi and her family to benefit political opponents of Imran Khan and whom she sees as a criminal,” the notice said. Bushra asked Maryam to withdraw her allegations and apologize within seven days or face court. Responding to the notice, the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) chief organizer said in a tweet, “Now she (Bushra Bibi) will at least go to court where her theft will be exposed.”
